SAFI™ TECHNOLOGIES: YOUR SOURCE FOR STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS
Integrated with SAFI™ 3D Structural Analysis, SAFI™ GSE Aluminum Structures is the industry standard for the design and verification of aluminum of any type. The unmatched graphical user interface of SAFI™ 3D allows to create, analyze and design large and complex models quickly and easily.
The program designs or verifies the whole or a part of a structure according to the Canadian CAN/CSA S157-05 design code using standard sections or parametric section shapes (over 30 shapes available).
All parameters required to calculate the resistance of the elements such as unbraced lengths, buckling lengths, buckling factors, end welding, in span welding, slenderness limit, and others. They can be customized either graphically or from spreadsheets.
DESIGN & VERIFICATION FEATURES
The program calculates the bending, compression, tension, shear and combined resistance of aluminum based on the results of a linear, P-Delta, non-linear, seismic, dynamic or moving load analysis. Singly symmetric, asymmetric and built-up section shapes are covered for all design codes
-Supports 2D and 3D structures.
-The AutoCAD interface imports models from AutoCAD by way of a DXF file.
-The AutoCAD interface exports models including solid shapes to AutoCAD by way of a DXF file.
-The solid view of the structure may also be exported when exporting to AutoCAD.
-Results can be visualized either graphically or numerically.
-Input data and results may be printed for the whole structure or partial structures using a graphical selection or a range of elements.
-Customized list of input data and results to be printed.
-Reports are available in several formats including SAFI™ reports, Microsoft Excel worksheets, Microsoft Access databases and ASCII text files.
-All graphics can be printed or copied to the clipboard for use in external programs.
